Overall we had a great time at the tournament, going 4-4 in qualifiers due to our auton tipping our robot twice and having to sit out 2 matches due to corrupted code. We were chosen for the 1st seed alliance along with 8675A and 2501J and proceeded to go undefeated.
For whatever reason when our drive would start at the beginning of autonomous, it would jump to the right causing the alignment to mess up and bring the mogo lift out on top of a cone and making the drive push the robot further into the air to the point of tipping.
The link posted below is a thread for roller vs claw here
Not a specific reason for why 8675 changed it but, kind of has some useful information that you may want to consider before choosing. I agree with @NightsRosario some it kind of has to do with personal preference, rollers are better for preloads since they have a lower margin of error. Lining up with the top of the cone is easier that with its side.
